If he does not kill Torres while he is here, however, the captain might spill even more rebel blood.

Citizens have lived without their king for so long; they no longer rely on him. Instead, they find anger in the fact that he had mercilessly slaughtered their kin, rather than praise their king and his journey to return to them. In their eyes, he is not a hero; instead, he is a killer. These views are soon quelled as Odysseus openly shows remorse for his misdeeds, as instructed by the gods, and reconciles with his people.

All these issues effect members of society on a day to day basis and is critical that as civilians, we reflect upon these issues. One example of racism and prejudice in the movie was when the Persian man went into the shop to purchase a gun. The store attendant made multiple racist comments which included, calling him Osama, blaming the Persian man for the nine- eleven attack and claiming that all middle eastern people are terrorists.

Flatland Project “His every movement is jealousy watched by the police till he comes of age and presents himself for inspection; then he is either destroyed, if he is found to exceed the fixed margin of deviation, or else immured in a Government Office as a clerk of the seventh class; prevented from marriage; forced to drudge at an uninteresting occupation for a miserable stipend..” This quote is referring to how the irregular figures are treated in flatland.

Leviticus 13:45-46 - And the leper in whom the plague is, his clothes shall be rent, and his head bare, and he shall put a covering upon his upper lip, and shall cry, Unclean, unclean. All the days where in the plague shall be in him he shall be defiled; he is unclean: he shall dwell alone; without the camp shall his habitation be. These verses are saying that lepers were to be isolated and outcasted.
